Storied: San Francisco


Jun 3, 2020

To help elevate the voices and stories of Black San Franciscans, we’ll be rerunning those episodes over the next few weeks. We’ll be back with new stories from your neighbors down the road a bit.

Our first rerun is our first-ever episode, from fall 2017. Robvell Smith tends bar at Tony's Pizza Napoletana in North Beach, which is where our paths first crossed nine or so years ago. We'll hear Robvell retell the story of how he got started behind the bar, some of his first bartending gigs (in SF, SoCal, and Hawaii), and his deep appreciation of and love for serving people at the bar.
